flea market finds - treasures from the trip home


I posted a while ago about our recent family holiday, involving a big dose of en-route op-shopping... and showed you what I found on the way there... now I've finally remembered to show you what we found on the way home!


Our main op-shop destinations were Leongatha and Korumburra - we stopped in both towns on the way there and back, so as not to miss out on any shops that might be open only on certain days.


We visited about 5 op-shops in total, plus a book fair selling cancelled library books - there was at least one other shop I didn't set foot in, amazingly (I was already testing the patience of my fellow travellers...) - and had a great time enjoying generous pricing, friendly people and lovely finds...


though I wish I'd had more time to really have a rummage... next time I might make my family stay in an op-shop town, instead of a beach side village!!

Check Her Library Adventures for more finds!

PS: I'm trying a bit of Spring-inspired decluttering with a weekly "reverse finds" post on Saturdays - would you like to join me?

My husbands family mostly live in Leongatha and I love scrounging around the local oppies there. Some great frinds, I would loved to have been to that book sale :)

yes, that might be the proper idea, the op shop village instead of beach, for your own tranquility... ;)))

My sister is getting married in the in the country this year and I've already compiled a list of the Oppys in the area we're going to hit up. My husband searches the clothes and I seem to zip around everywhere else.

I'm with you on the pricing in small town op shops!

You've got a good eye! I love the fabrics you find.

Great finds, yes reverse finds sounds good except I just seem to hoard everything!

Love your concept of reverse finds! I hope to do some spring cleaning over the upcoming school holidays.
